Use My Experience to Achieve the Physique you Deserve 

Being an athlete for 25 years, I was an Olympian, two times world cup athlete in swimming and a two times musclemania champion before becoming a personal trainer in NYC. Now this is not to state how great I am but that I have tried every training and nutritional strategy there is and made plenty of mistakes along the way.

That said, I can save you 20 years of trying and cut right through the fog to get you where you want to be in the shortest amount of time possible. All I ask for is your trust and commitment!

Here Is How We Achieve your Fitness Transformation

Your fitness transformation with us starts with a screening and a fitness assessment. At first, we’ll ask you several questions about your lifestyle, diet, occupation and medical history to know the current level of your fitness.

As a next step, we will look into your fitness goals and design the program around them as well as taking your capabilities into account.

Afterwards, we thoroughly analyze your current physique, looking for muscular imbalances as well as potential injuries. This will help us in identifying, setting and achieving your fitness milestones in the smallest span of time.

If you are an online personal training client, we hand you a questionnaire and formulate your personal training depending on your answers. From there on we can draw up a training outline for you along with a nutritional plan.


Where do you train?

You will have access to our own training facility/health club in Midtown Manhattan, which is fully equipped to your needs. Training sessions last about one hour will leave you with a feeling of being accomplished but not beat up.

In the end, your success is our success. There is no better ad than a transformed and happy client!

Great Maik. So why would I train with you guys as my personal trainer in NYC?
Good point.

Here is what we will NOT do

  • 1. Scream at you. Sorry, the drill sergeant thing only on “The Biggest Loser” and even there it does not really work.
  • 2. Judge you in any form.
  • 3. Claim that we know everything.

Here is what we will do:

  • 1. Start with science. We will look into the following principles and draw up your own plan from there : Macro nutrient splits, training frequency, progressive overload, creating tension in the muscle improve your sleep habits.
  • 2. Observe and track
  • 3. Adjust accordingly to results on your individual basis

What I bring to the table

Why are we different?
What makes a great coach that can help you on your fitness journey?

There a few components to that answer:

  1. Have a stellar resume.
    Personally, I think a great coach should bring academic, as well as athletic credentials. Being published while having been or being a good athlete would be an ideal combination. I understand this is not always doable, but we are talking about a great coach here so let’s have some standards. Someone who has walked the walk as a competitive athlete will have an easier time relating to the dietary struggles of the client, being able to write (I.e.., teaching shows that you have understood the matter well enough to pass the knowledge on to others).
  2. Produce results in clients.
    That is obviously a given. But there is more to that: How are the results achieved? By using drugs and overly restrictive diets? If so, this approach is not sustainable and I would label it as bad coaching. Results need to be achieved in a feasible, easy-to-maintain manner.Lead by example, provides knowledge without claiming to have found the magic bullet, and is able to read the client. On a day-to-day basis, a good coach should be like a great tank commander (being German, I could not help it). (S)he should be able to change tactics as (s)he sees fit by what is happening on the front line, without giving up on the strategic goal. Client had a day from hell? No need to cancel the leg workout, but maybe 10×10 squats would not the best of ideas.So one would not give up on training legs altogether, but tweak the workout with something that makes sense that day.
  1. Educate the client.
    To be a great coach, one has to be able to pass on information to the client in a way that does not seem patronizing or top-down, but makes the client want to apply the information because (s)he feels it would beneficial, as opposed to wanting to please the coach.Lift others up. A truly great coach puts others first. Nobody wants to hear how you build your physique or what you did back when you were great, unless there is something that will help the client. Coaching is about improving the client, not retelling war stories.
  1. Share the knowledge generously.
    A great coach is not motivated by revenue dollars and Facebook likes but acts as a promoter of exercise and nutrition. One way is to be an active contributor on public forums by exposing free content to a broad base of mostly nonpaying clients. Our YouTube channel has 100s of videos that are being viewed by 1000s daily, same with our Facebook page.
